"My job is to out there and finish checks. I don't think I'm a cheap player or trying to make cheap shots out there. I don't think I was coming in to hit with my elbows or my arms up. His head was a little low, I guess. At the same time, I thought I finished through his body." Today, 7:21 am
  • Bylsma wants Kane to shoot from slot more

"I've definitely followed (Holtby)," Brodeur said. "Any time that a goalie has a special season like that, it's pretty impressive. I like him. I sat down at the draft with (Caps coach Barry Trotz) and we had a lot of conversations about the way he played and the workload. He asked what I thought about it. For me, he reminds me of me a lot. Not the way he plays or whatever, but the way he puts himself out there. He's not scared. He just wants to play. I'm sure he's playing through tons of injuries. He's a warrior out there. He just looks like that. I don't know him and I don't know if he does or not, but he's having a great year and it's not just this year.
